Asset Acceptance, LLC is an notorious “debt buyer”, buying up portfolios of old debt from banks, credit card companies, hospitals, doctors, cell phone companies and car companies for pennies on the dollar.
According to the New York State Unified Court System, Asset Acceptance, LLC filed more than 2,000 New York debt collection lawsuits in 2013 alone. These cases were filed in New York’s civil, city and small claims courts where debt collection cases are most often filed.
You may be asking – “having filed this many cases in New York alone, how can Asset Acceptance, LLC be sure I owe them money?” The simple answer is they can’t.
